The former Blessed Virgin Mary has had enough. She’s spent the past 2000 years looking after others, only to find that her true story has been erased. No one knows the real Miryam, the flesh and blood mother, the woman who taught the foundations of a world-wide religion to her often disobedient son. As she lives through her latest reincarnation, she struggles to understand why she keeps returning. Will her study at a Theological College finally allow her to free herself? Will she be able to retell her story, make herself real? Will she find the other half to her soul?

About me:

Dorothyanne is a retired nurse, artist, and writer, and woman struggling with faith, who has been a freelance writer for the past 25 years between family, work, and other demands. She has been been published in several places, including the Army Times, Country Connection, the Ottawa Citizen, the Oxford Companion to Medicine, and the Canadian Author’s Association Anthology.

She’s most proud to have won the 2010 Bloody Pete, a very sweet little skeleton, at that year’s Bloody Words Conference. She’s also been shortlisted for the Ken Klonsky Novella award and various other prizes, including the 3 Day Novel Contest, an annual madness everyone should try at least once

She has lived with multiple sclerosis for over 15 years and is grateful to all those that have helped her in this life challenge. Writing and art, and the support of friends and family, is what keeps her mostly sane.

In her non-writing life, Dorothyanne is a world known fibre artist (note: world known, not world renowned), embroiderer, and occasional ukulele player. She is an incurable volunteer.
